I'm interested in learning about how Silkies become the colors they are. Id really like to have some variety in my silkie flock but as hard as I look, I am not finding chicks available in these colors. I'm not opposed to creating the color myself but don't want to go at it blindly. Is there information available on creating Chocolate colored Lavendar colored Cuckoo colored I have buff, white, black and partridge Silkies. Is there also information on what would likely occur if cross color mating took place?
